One California town is utilizing the U.S. Constitution and rejecting Governor Gavin Newsom’s mandate that requires schoolchildren to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Oroville, California has officially declared itself a “constitutional republic.” As a constitutional republic, leaders “pledge to fight mandates they say go too far” reports the San Francisco Gate.

Oroville’s Vice Mayor Scott Thomson is the father of two young boys and says the mandate for children was the straw that broke the camel’s back. “He believed the government had no right to tell him what to put into his, or his children’s bodies. Many of his constituents agreed when it came to pandemic mandates” writes the SF Gate.

Thomson felt he and his constituents were left with no choice, and so he declared Oroville a constitutional republic. The declaration passed by the City Council reads:

“Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens”

Thomson has said that “the desire here is dialogue” rather than sweeping mandates. Oroville is a city of only 20,000 but is rapidly growing, as in recent years it has determined itself to be a sanctuary of place “otherwise exempt from some liberal ideal.”

Oroville is not the first California town to be rebelling. Two years ago, the town of Needles became a “sanctuary city” for the Second Amendment. The move was in defiance of California’s strict gun control laws.

Other towns such as Atwater and Coalinga declared themselves as a “sanctuary city for business” and a town where all businesses are essential, as a consequence of the state’s strict pandemic shutdown orders.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
